Replying to:Refrigeration Options for RL28
A message some time ago had someone fitting an Isotherm unit to the existing ice chest in an RL28. Does anyone have an update on this type of installation? The RL 28 Ice chest is much larger than the Waeco mobile fridges so for similar outlay a much larger capacity can be obtained. However, not really convinced that the current Ice chest has sufficient insulative properties and is really too big for a weekend when I would simply take along an esky. Seems like it would need several large ice blocks or a dozen party ice bags to get it cold and keep it that way. How do people find the ice chest for longer periods away? Has anyone removed an ice chest from the boat? Can it be manoeuvred easily to fit through the companionway? There is an amazing amount of empty space behind the ice chest that could be made use of if a smaller unit was installed.
